South City Roads In Good Condition

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission just released its annual survey of Bay Area road conditions.

The Metropolitation Transportation Commission just released its annual Bay Area Pavement Conditions Survey and concluded that South San Francisco received "Good" ranking.

Half Moon Bay, Belmont, Woodside and East Palo Alto  fell into the "At-Risk" category. Foster City was the only city in San Mateo County to receive the "Very Good" score. 

"The pavement on the Bay Area’s 42,600 lane-miles of local streets and roads remains in 'fair' condition, with the typical stretch of asphalt showing serious wear and likely to require rehabilitation soon," according to a press release.

"Unless local voters decide pavement conditions are an important priority, city and county governments will be doing well just to keep their streets and roads in current condition."

On a scale of 0-100, Bay Area roads were given a 66 rating. In San Mateo County, we're in a bit better shape, with a 76 rating calculated over a three-year moving average. 

Where are the best roads in the Bay Area? Brentwood — in Contra Costa County — was given a 86 rating. The worst? Larkspur, in Marin County, and St. Helena, in Napa County, each received a rating of 44, considered 'poor' in ranking.

Here are the rankings of cities in the latest survey:
